Versace Bright Crystal Perfume Review
I had first fallen in love with this perfume when my dear friend from Dubai had come down to Mumbai. While I was waiting for her to get ready so that we can go out, she sprayed this perfume. I immediately fell in love with its intoxicating fragrance. This was my first feminine-smelling perfume that I fell in love with. Previously, I used to mostly use men’s perfumes and Axe deos (barring musk ones, I hate musk) 😛 Out of the few feminine ones that I used, I liked them, but did not really love them. This was a fragrance I was completely bowled over, but when I saw its beautiful bottle and price of the fragrance, I nearly died.
After which my friend told me she can get it for a much much cheaper price from Dubai and I wasted no time in telling her to send it for me and I really did bag it at half the price :happydance:
Perfume Description from Versace:
An enthralling and voluptuous fragrance, for the Versace Woman who is strong and confident yet feminine, sensual and always glamorous, who loves to be enveloped in a fragrance that delicately tastes of colourful and juicy pomegranate grains, iced freshness and shining yuzu. A scent that then flows into the beauty of magnolia, peony and lotus flowers in a mixture of voluptuousness and transparency, and delights you with its subtle sensuality and the enticing
presence of plant amber, acajou and musk.
Rs. 4895.00/$ 97.90 for 90ml, that’s the current price (without any discount) in Indian rupees, I tried to find out online. Prices vary according to discounts offered on different sites; however, you do get this perfume over the counter, but, I don’t know its price there. Made in Italy.
My Experience with Versace Bright Crystal Perfume:
I just love it because its one of the best-looking perfumes bottles out there. The bottle itself is shaped like a crystal/diamond with soft, pink-coloured perfume which looks extremely pleasant and even the stopper itself looks like a huge piece of crystal with so many well-placed cuts that it looks luminescent! Right in the centre is placed a Versace logo engraved coin. Overall, this perfume looks like a precious jewel with ethereal looks right out of those fantasy books I read and movies I see 😀
As stated above its top notes consist of:
* pomegranate seeds and the bright scent of ouzo.
The heart notes are:
*peony, magnolia and lotus (the holy flower, symbol of beauty).
In the base are:
*combined the ambergris, mahogany and musk.
Now, I have taken the top, heart and base notes from the web. I would personally like to describe what it smells like. Its quite flowery and citrusy when I spray it on. It is quite a voluptuous and sensual fragrance because its quite strong. Its not one of those light fragrances, yet it smells very fresh and clean. Yes, its a very clean fragrance and is quite a mood uplifter. It’s a happy fragrance, you can wear on hot days, in winter, on dates, etc.
Its even more amazing for evenings and almost everyone I meet say I am smelling good when I wear this perfume and now its become “my scent.”
When I wear this perfume generously, I literally feel I am on a tropical island and a gentle breeze is carrying the smell of different exotic flowers and fresh fruits towards me :love:
What I absolutely love about this fragrance is that its base notes don’t turn excruciatingly sweet unlike other perfumes. That’s a huge complaint I have with other fragrances. They lose top and heart notes too soon and what remains for long is burningly sweet smell which I really hate. Versace Bright Crystal stays true to its notes and is not a pain in the nose 😀 It does smell a bit of musk in the base note (I hate musk), but its not too obvious and combines with other smells, so its quite a pleasurable perfume to wear till the end.
Its a very long-lasting perfume. Its lasts long but not too long on the skin for many friends of mine, but on me, it wears really long, but on clothes, its another story. Its lasts soooooo long on clothes that even after washing the clothes, I can smell the perfume in its full fresh glory 😀 like really!! Its amazing to slip on fresh clean awesome-smelling clothes and this was the experience with all my friends who have used this perfume of mine. The fragrance doesn’t budge from clothes for days, hence I mostly spray it on clothes rather than on the skin and that way it lasts very long and not only others, but even I keep getting fresh whiffs of this fragrance time and again.
Pros of Versace Bright Crystal Perfume:
- To me, its an all-season fragrance. Since its fresh and uplifting, it can be worn on hot summer days and since its strong and sensuous, it can be a good evening or winter perfume.
- Amazing lasting power, like realllly amazing. It stays a couple of days on the clothes.
- Top heart and base notes keep emanating after good intervals respectively. Its not like the top notes disappears within seconds and heart notes after a few minutes and all that remains is base note. It takes its own time. that’s the beauty of this perfume which I appreciate a lot.
- Also, the base note is not burningly sweet and flat, which I see is the story of almost all cheap, mid-range and expensive perfumes alike. It still remains a blend of its exotic ingredients and is not at all flat.
- The amazing packaging. It dresses up my vanity table so well and the fresh pink colour is so enticing. This bottle literally is a precious jewel resting on my vanity table.
- Clumsy me, I have dropped this bottle many times, but it has never broken. So, I can safely say that its sturdy.
Cons of Versace Bright Crystal Perfume:
- I have no cons except that its expensive.
Final Thoughts on Versace Bright Crystal Perfume:
Its expensive but its really well worth the price. Being expensive, it lives up to the expectations of a good fragrance, packaging, lasting power and a good prominent base note that sticks to its essence and doesn’t turn too sweet.
Would I Buy Versace Bright Crystal Perfume Again?
Yes! Definitely. Its “my” fragrance now. I won’t be able to stay without this.
Would I Recommend Versace Bright Crystal Perfume?
Yes, but fragrances are a personal preference and I would request you to get a whiff at the counter.
5 out of 5.
